Located on beautiful, secluded Osgood Pond, White Pine Camp is one of a small handful of remaining historic Adirondack Great Camps open to the public. Built in 1907 for Archibald White, a New York City banker and industrialist and his wife Olive Moore White, an opera star, the property, which hosted many dignitaries and celebrities over the years, is most noted for having served as the Summer White House for President Calvin Coolidge. White Pine Camp is open year around and in the winter offers incredible cross country skiing and snowshoe opportunities.

We went up for a long weekend in late may for our anniversary. Cabin 2 was so cute, very rustic, but clean. I loved the games and books available in the room. The kitchen was well appointed, had everything we needed. Two fireplaces, and they provide kindling, newspaper and matches to start the fire (fires were even ready to go when we got there...nice touch!), and a whole wood box full of wood! Amazing! We had a fire each night, even though it wasn't actually very cold. A great was to relax after a fun day. I loved being on the lake and hearing the Loons at night...that was pretty special (and spooky, kinda). The boat house has canoes, kayaks and tandem kayaks. They provide life jackets and some paddles. The boats are first come basis, which wasn't a problem while we were there. The lake is a good size, and we did find Loons which was what we were hoping for. Didn't see any little ones, though, we were too early in the season. They also have a Bowling Alley/Pool Table building down by the water. While playing pool, we had Loons calling right outside the window...so cool. The bowling alley was fun...you have to reset the pins manually, and send the ball back on a wooden track ball return...you have to see it to believe it, I wasn't expecting it to work!! Very cool, and entertaining. I loved that there's no TV, just a porch with ADK chairs and a nice view of the lake. The one real negative of our trip, which is no one's fault, is that the BUGS were RIDICULOUS. Lots of bug spray, and may I suggest looking ridiculous in a head net. Even out on the water in the kayaks, if there was no breeze (there was hardly ever a breeze) the bugs just congregated on your head. We did have head nets, otherwise it would have been unbearable. I have some comments, in the event management is reading this: 1. Do something about your boat house. There should be kayak stands where the boats are stored. Walking into the boathouse, the canoes and kayaks are all over the floor...they should be stored up on racks so that it's not hazardous to try wrestling individual boats past other boats. 2. There are 4 kayak paddles (that I could find). There are enough kayaks/tandems for at least 8 people to be kayaking. So.... 3. In Cabin 2 (at least) the smoke alarms are way to close to the fireplace (in the bedroom, anyway) and to the toaster in the kitchen. They're super sensitive and the alarms went off during a normal fire, and when making toast. I get that you recently had a fire, but there must be something you can do about that, perhaps a fan? 4. I kinda wish all the porches were screened in...we weren't able to sit out there long due to bugs. Maybe that could be looked into. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED this place and it was relaxing and fun and we had a great time. These are merely suggestions to make it even better.

Room Tip: Cabin 2 was very nice, but if it's going to be buggy opt for a screened porch cabin.

Our favorite family vacation, white Pine and staff were wonderful. The lake was great fishing for the kids. They loved the bowling alley and boats. My wife and I enjoyed how quiet and serene the camp is. Close to local towns and sites to explore during the day. We look forward to returning again.

We just returned from a weekend getaway at WPC- our first visit but it won't be our last. It's hard to capture just how special this property is. The history, the gorgeous surroundings, the privacy. We snowshoed for hours, build our own luge for tubing and visited nearby VIC at Paul Smiths to try cross country skiing. When we needed a break from the elements, we bowled or sat by a roaring fire. Staff was attentive and eager to help and answer questions. While there were plenty of other guests this weekend, we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. This is the ADK as it should be, completely unplugged from the rest of the world and focusing on nature and the people you're with. We can't wait to go back!

We have stayed here a couple of times previously over the years and I have to stay my family of 4 (kids are ten year old twins) LOVE it here in the deep snow. It's quiet, comfortable and the sense of history here reminds us of other places we have traveled to such as Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood, OR and Williamsburg, VA. This is the IDEAL place to undergo a digital detox and to SLOW DOWN. The internet connection runs from fine at times to kinda slow which is just perfect for the intention to get the kids off the devices. The entire time here they were reading, relaxing, playing games, outside sledding on the hill, bowling, learning photography, etc. Not a TV in sight or the ability to download a movie possible. Heavenly. If you have device-addicted children/teens and need a soft landing for a cure (think as a stress-free alternative to camping) this is the place to be. I have to disagree with the below review of the beds, couches and the roads. We are in Mrs. Coolidges and the beds and couch are comfortable and fine. No issue at all with sheets, pillows or furnishings. All of my family find the beds really comfortable and we sleep soundly through the night. Is this 4 star luxury? No. But we're not here for that. It is 4 Star location, history, peace and quiet. As for the roads, I understand what the reviewer is talking about as we have visited here in the late springtime last year BUT the way we remedied this was to SLOW DOWN on the road and not drive too fast! The condition of the road would most certainly have not damaged our car and this is a stretch to say the least. On this visit the roads were well maintained and smooth so it might be a non-issue at this point. We are here enjoying the Saranac Winter Carnival and this is such a delightful place to enjoy it from. The endless supply of firewood a major bonus for these gorgeous fireplaces (TWO!! One in the living room AND the bedroom!!!) We have to space and time to cook wonderful meals after a big shop at ALDI and Nori's at Saranac Lake and just love staying in and cooking. The peace, quiet and tranquility are unparalleled. This place is worth every penny and has become a family tradition.

Our family (2) adults, a five year old and a four year old) stayed the week at this most memorable camp. My wife and I have stayed here several times but this is the first time for our children. The camp was built by people of means around 100 years ago and it has not changed dramatically since then. We stayed in the "Presidents" Cabin where Calvin Coolidge summered 1926. (Part of the larger "Owners" building) We enjoyed canoeing on Osgood Lake, bowling in the vintage bowling alley, and just wandering the camp. It is an amazing place and hard to believe it was built as a family camp so long ago. There is natural beauty mixed with a really cool history lesson. I was worried that the kids might not like it but it turned out to be one of their favorite places. We are headed back this coming summer and hopefully many more times. The staff we spoke to seemed excited to be there and did not intrude or interrupt us at all through the week. I wish I knew more places to go with similar traits, hard to find. Our lodging was an excellent mix of Adirondack, eclectic and comfortable. We used the fireplace most nights when it cooled off. The kitchen was modest but had everything we needed. The porch overlooking the lake was a favorite of our daughter. Overall this turned out to be one of the most pleasant stays we’ve had. White Pine Camp has an odd combination of ingredients that turned out to suit us just fine.
